    • Hi Gedeon,
      I partly disagree with the idea of adding the career aspect into the high school AP courses. It’s not feasible for most high school students to spend time on careers that they don’t even know if they are interested in or will be study in. Therefore, there will be less and less students going to place themselves into AP courses.

    • Gedeon, I really like the way you put this post together it is very well organized and gives a detailed explanation to a uncommon idea. If I could recommend something, it would be to include your opinion and why. With that said, you did a very great job!

    • I agree with everything you have said, Gideon. I believe vocational training is essential in increasing the quality of life for blue-collar workers.

    • Hi, Gedeon. I am really interested in climate change these days and lots of things, especially greenhouse gases, cause serious climate change. Greenhouse effect is the main cause of climate change and this link would serve short summary of the facts about greenhouse effect: https://interestingengineering.com/4-important-facts-about-climate-change-everyone-must-know

    • Dear Gedeon this article closely relates to the article I wrote. In my article I focused more on the greenhouse gases coming from cars and factory pollution. I found an article with a graph that shows how Co2 is the highest levels ever recorded. Thanks for your post it was very interesting.

    • Gedeon,

      I think your analysis on the effects of overproduced products on the climate is very fascinating! I didn’t even realize that, from what I picked up from your article, restricting agriculture production could be a way to lower carbon emissions. I noticed that you mentioned that Gimenez’s solution is better than Cook’s because having consumers adapt to a life without meat is more difficult, but I gave it some thought and would actually argue that by Cook’s solution is better because Gimenez’s solution of restricting agriculture could be applied as a domino effect.
      The way I see it, applying meat reduction programs (such as Meatless Mondays or switching to Beyond Meat) to schools and businesses is a cheap and more socially acceptable way to lower the consumption of meat. Yes, I agree it’s hard for consumers to adapt to a meatless lifestyle, but this method is a lot simpler and financially capable rather than forcing an entire industry to lower their production. If the demand for meat lowered, then a whole chain of events would start: Meat industries would need to compensate this lower demand by decreasing their production of livestock, and this lowered number of livestock would mean that the demand for crops used to feed them would dropped, and this drop of crop demand would mean the agriculture industry would need to reduce their production of crops. This chain of cause and effect has Cook’s solution eventually leading to Gimenez’s, which is why I prefer Cook’s method.
      I’m super curious to your thoughts about my breakdown though! I’m aware that Gimenez’s solution can be a lot more efficient than Cook’s, and that the chain can happen the other way around, but my concern is the cost and reaction of the consumers. I fear that if the chain were to happen the other way and consumers sudden lose their easy access to meat, there may be some angry people. Let me know what you think!
